DMN16 — inconsistent date comparisons make unavoidavle paradoxes

  • Key: DMN16-35
  • Status: open  
  • Source: fujitsu america ( keith swenson)
  • Summary:

    Date "=" is defined to include the time zone, and "<" and ">" does not. This causes a bunch of problems.

    see: https://social-biz.org/2017/08/03/a-strange-feeling-about-dates/

    Suggestion is simple: define date equality to be (date1 - date2 == 0) Eliminate the need to compare the "timezone" of the dates.

    My experience with the group is that most suggestions are ignored, so I don't really want to waste any time making a more detailed proposal, but if you have questions about this problem you can contact me.
